Heijmans completes new Eurojust building
March 30, 2017
The construction of the new accommodation for Eurojust in the International Zone of The Hague has been completed. Heijmans delivered the building today. Over the upcoming period, the focus will be on the building's fit-up and on the move. Eurojust expects to be fully operational on the Johan de Wittlaan around summer. Eurojust is involved in fighting cross-border crime and terrorism.
Elegant and Modest
The building on the Johan de Wittlaan is elegant and modest in appearance. The sloping windows and the light-coloured fibre-reinforced polymer façade interact with the sunlight and the atmosphere. The dune-like landscape intersected by corten steel perfectly matches the design of the World Forum area on the other side of the Johan de Wittlaan. Mecanoo, Royal HaskoningDHV and DS landscape architects created the design.
Accommodation of International Organizations
In addition to Eurojust, various international (judicial) government organizations, including Europol, the NCIA, the Kosovo Court and the International Criminal Court, have established their offices in The Hague, the International City of Peace and Justice. The Central Government Real Estate Agency uses its expertise to assist international government organizations in acquiring suitable accommodation in the Netherlands.
